David Cameron
Prime Minister of the United Kingdom and Leader of the Conservative Party
CSPAN 01/16/2015
Cameron: It has been possible in both our companies -- countries by signed warrant, by the home secretary to potentially listen to a call between two terrorists to stuff them in activity. in your country, a judicial process, where -- we believe in very clear front doors through legal processes that should help to keep our country safe. As technology develops as the world moves on we should try to avoid the safe havens that could be created for terrorists to talk to each other. That is the goal that is so important. I am in no doubt having been prime minister for foreign half years, having seen how are our intelligence services work, and there is a connection between that and the capabilities that our intelligence services within the law used to defend our people.

Herridge: (they said they want more, not less,) cooperation, also from the big internet providers. Cameron: Not asking for backdoors. We have-We believe in very clear frontdoors through legal process that should help to keep our countries safe and my only argument is that as technology develops, as the world moves on we should try to avoid the safe havens that could otherwise be created for terrorists to talk to each other. Herridge: At one point during that news conference Mr. Obama pointed to the Boston marathon bombing. As you recall one of the brothers was in contact with individuals overseas and had a very sort of robust youtube channel with radical islamic videos. But I would point out that it was not a failure to collect phone records or internet traffic in that particular case. It was a culture failure. The FBI failed to share this information about the Tsarnaev brother with the Boston cops because they didn't feel they had the need to know. So collection would not have made a difference in this particular case.
